Hi All!  I need to reduce the size of a print ad I am working on.  I can resize the artboard no problem, but how do I get all my layers to the same size?  Please tell me I do not have the start from scratch!  Cheers!

You have to scale the art and the artboard. I would suggest to first draw a rectangle the size of the artboard. Then scale this together with the art. Then make the artboard the same size as the rectangle (this can be done via the sizes menu)

You can do it through scripting. There is a previous thread here:
